Sprawled out on more than 1,700 acres in Tuscany’s Pratomagno Mountains, Il Borro is luxurious — and how could it not be with the legendary Ferragamo family as the resort’s owners? While the fashion-centric family has had the estate since 1993, it just launched its first U.S. campaign, inviting you to experience what this resort has to offer.
For starters, Il Borro is set within a medieval village about 40 miles outside Florence with everything from a vineyard to an equestrian center onsite. There are just 30 accommodations (ranging from suites and apartments to villas and farmhouses), so it’s large enough that you don’t feel isolated, but intimate enough to snag your own private spot under the Tuscan sun. The king of them all is Villa Il Borro, which was built in 1848 by Prince Hohenloe and has been extensively restored by the Ferragamos. The 24,000-square-foot mansion overlooks the estate, including the medieval village.
Whether you want a group trip or a romantic getaway, a trip to the exclusive Il Borro is a must in Italy. From horseback riding to tours of the winery, you’ll find plenty to do at this historic resort. And when night falls, head to Osteria del Borro for a classic Tuscan meal with many of the ingredients sourced from the estate’s own gardens.
